Gamma Alpha Bulletin
I hope everyone has been enjoying their well deserved holiday break.
As you know we canceled the December Executive Board meeting because
my husband was taken to the hospital. Fortunately, it was not a heart
attack as we suspected. We went to our home away from home in St.
Helen for some stress free R&R during the break. I am definitely
looking forward to a healthier '97! Because of the canceled Executive
Board meeting, I am rescheduling it for January 8 at 4:30 at Water Club
Grill. This will be before the regularly scheduled meeting on January 8th.

Mary Jo Dreffs' phone number is wrong in the yearbook again! It is 810-437-9754.
Alice Duke received good news from her oncologist on the night of our holiday auction. She is in 100% remission! Great news, Alice.
Grace Morgan gave me the final numbers from the Holiday Auction. We made $1,513 from the auction, raffle and donations from members unable to attend. The Personal Growth Committee (Marie Canzoneri (Ch.), Carol Holland, Barb Broadley, Geri Stone, Debbie Ervin, Bonnie Schweitzer, and Joan Lyon) would like to thank everyone for their wonderful donations for the auction. There were lots of great things that started "bidding" wars. The proceeds from the auction go to Gamma Alpha's scholarship fund. Sorry, no photos from the auction this month.
April 25-27, 1997…This year's State Convention will be held at the Amway Grand Am in Grand Rapids. Information about registration will be in the winter Wolverine.
